Center Jamil Sanders transfers to Rutgers

Center Jamil Sanders transfers to Rutgers

In one of the strangest moves that has happened in the offseason, freshman Jamil Sanders is transferring to Rutgers, despite leading the offensive line in blocking with 47. Despite keeping the services of four juniors: kicker Chris Lawson, punter Marco Gordon, strong safety Vince Wolfe and cornerback Tony Hubbard, the coaching staff was unable to retain the services of Sanders. 

"Playing time is very important to me and I don't see myself getting on the field here," Sanders said in a face-to-face interview with Coach Tatsuya Kaname.

Sanders was sixth in blocking last season for the Magi, along with Matt Hopkins. The loss means that Tony Williams will come into camp as the top center on the depth chart, and some players on the defensive line may have to move over to the center position to add some sort of depth.

"This was something we did not expect," said Coach Kaname, "and one we are truly disappointed by. Jamil was a solid contributor to our team, and it is unfortunate that he chose not to continue his journey here. We do not consider Jamil to be a part of the Family and longer, and as a result, the Scarlet Knights will be on our schedule next year."
